The gecko (dark hair, center) remained undecided as to his preference blonde or brunette at press time, although sources close to the gecko say he expects to make his decision by the end of the Gecko Ball. Recycling Report: Recycle Your Beer and Soda Cans You may recycle because, as some say, its the right thing to do, but many people dont realize recycling can mean money for Gulfport. Unlike trash, which the city must pay the county to accept at its waste-to-energy (WTE) facility, materials recovery facilities, or MRFs (pronounced to rhyme with turf), pay cities for their recyclables. Every week, the citys recycling truck collects plastics, cans, and old paper from blue and green curbside bins and bring them to the MRF by the WTE. See Recycle, page 45Gulfport Water, Sewer, Stormwater Rate Increases Gulfport residents and business owners could soon see a 12% increase in water, sewer and stormwater rates in their October bills. Councilwoman Salmon asked why the proposal exceeded what the city currently needed to charge to stay legally in line with what the wholesaler, St. Petersburg, charged. As a reseller, Gulfport cannot charge less for water than the wholesaler charges its other customers. City Manager Jim OReilly explained that the increase was intended to avoid a future increase of 37%, as when the citys contract with St. Petersburg expires in 2017, St. Petersburg can add a 25% surcharge to the bill, which it has done in recent years with St. Pete Beach and See Rate Increase, page 6

10 Gabber August 8 August 14, 2013 Letters Of mosquitos and exceptional service Dear Editor: This is in response to the letter printed in the July 25th Gabber from Helen Roney. Why doesn't the city spray for mosquitos? It appears the city has money for a multitude of different festivals, which I enjoy, the Tuesday downtown market, which I also enjoy, and I also like to sit outside and enjoy my neighborhood. The mosquitos make it impossible to be outside after dusk. I have many autoimmune diseases and mosquito bites aggravate my health condition. I don't know how much money the city would need for spraying once a week but I can guarantee that the citizens of Gulfport would greatly appreciate Gulfport spending some money on Gulfport. Letters to the Editor Please keep letters to the editor as brief and to the point as possible. Letters must be typed in upper and lower case on plain white paper or emailed to publisher@thegabber.com. One letter per author every four weeks. All letters are printed and edited for length and content at the discretion of the editors. The Gabber encourages and welcomes all letters. The views and opinions expressed in this publication do not necessarily represent the views of the publishers, staff or advertisers. On another matter, I recently had to call the police 911 number to report something outside my house. The dispatcher stayed on the phone with me until the police arrived. From the time I called the police until the time they showed up was 15 minutes or less. Three cars showed up and did a sweep of my house. They found a cat perhaps tripping my motion detector lights outside which caused my dog to go nuts barking. I would like to thank dispatcher who stayed on the phone me what they found. This happened about 3 a.m. Thank you all so very much for the prompt service. I'm sure any time, for any reason, appreciate their service. Sandi Gilner Journalism Summer Camp Offers Gabber Competitionfrom front page newspaper came off the presses on St. Pete Beach this week. In one of St. Pete Beachs 11 specialty camps Journalism and Digital Photography campers produced a newspaper. The result of this camp, the Yearly Shout Out, resulted from a week of interviewing, taking photos, writing stories, creating puzzles, and deciding how to lay out the newspaper. Journalism and Digital Photography campers decided what should go into the newspaper, which pictures would accompany the articles, and what types of things would appeal to campers of all ages. They also took photos, wrote articles and photo cutlines, and created the puzzles on the back page. Campers learned how to produce a newspaper and how to take better digital photographs. They had to attend budget meetings, where they budgeted the space available for articles, photos, and puzzles and decided how to spend their space. They even celebrated putting the paper to bed with a lunch and ice cream party. Ten-year-old Xander Kohler took the front page photo and returning camper Greg Glasscock earned the honor of photo editor and learned that he had to assign photos fairly would match with each article. He had ultimate responsibility for every photo. Kai Schulte and Xander Kohler, new campers, interviewed people and collaborated on their individual projects. The Gabber printed the paper, and PJs sponsored the time-honored tradition of putting the paper to bed party. To see the paper in its entirety, please read this article online and look for the link at the end of the article.

26 Gabber August 8 August 14, 2013 By Holiday Mathis Venus is taking care of personal business in Virgo through Thursday, and then Friday she heads to her vacation home in Libra. (The two signs Venus rules are Taurus and Libra.) In Libra, Venus pumps up the intensely romantic ideas and helps us connect in ways that seem artfully designed enough to have popped off a movie screen. The suns and moons positions at the end of the week ignite the spirit of adventure. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There are many questions that employers ask during job interviews that are, in fact, illegal, but that doesnt prevent them from asking. Youll be asked inappropriate questions this week. Whether during an interview or in your everyday life, use tact while them. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Shakespeare might think a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, but youre increasingly irritated with someone who calls you everything but your proper name. Dont be afraid to demand that you be recognized for who you are. What you put out into the world this week warrants credit. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). At the end of a long day, as sleep is coming on, you sometimes fall prey to regrets. Regret is simply a part of the beauty of having a choice and making decisions. Dont give it more power than it deserves in the scheme of your life. Like the Sinatra song, allow yourself a few -but too few to mention. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You like to do your thing and allow others to do the same. This week, however, it may feel as though a loved ones hobby is approaching a state of obsession. Blaming the hobby wont help, but make clear that there are other diversions, including shared ones, and communicate your enthusiasm for them. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Youll be doling out compliments. These should be about one experience using contrasts to do the job. Comparative statements only weaken the focus and cheapen the message. These kinds of conversational nuances will make a difference in your interactions this week. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The word comfort combines two Latin words -- com, which means together, and fortis, which means strengthen. By joining someone, you strengthen that person. You provide comfort by simply being there. If you worry about what to say or do, you may do the wrong thing and say too much. Just be there. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Because you are so strong, the tender, shy, sensitive and fragile will be drawn to you. Giving others your psychological presence will be of utmost importance. Dont worry too much about the exact dialogue or other minutia of your interactions. If your heart and mind are with the other person, thats whats felt. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Accept yourself. Not because its the best thing you can do for your personal your spirituality, your image, your popularity, your style, your intellect, your health or another part of your life that matters. Accept yourself because youre acceptable. Youre doing your best. And through selfacceptance, youll do even better. ARIES (March 21-April 19). Youll be in an exciting new social environment. Be careful about how you proceed. Take too low a position and you run the risk that theyll mistake you for a doormat. Take too high a posture and they could mistake you for a target to take shots at. The middle ground is best until you get the social lay of the land. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Advice may be given, but its usually not really a gift. Its a desire that the speaker is having -a desire to guide or to appear smart or to see things go in a different direction. Let the full spirit of context inform you as you week, including this piece. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Diversity is necessary for success. Luckily, youll be surrounded by people very different from you. This ensures that you can all move forward in interesting and effective directions. If you surrounded yourself with clones, you would have too much of the same strength and be blighted by your collective weakness. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Youre thinking differently than you were thinking 10 years ago -or even last year, for that matter. And those who are thinking along different lines than you are will develop, too. So dont spend too much time or attention worrying about where everyone is right now. By just sharing, youll make a difference. This Week's Birthdays: Your friends will challenge, cheer and lift you up this year, so make plans and time to be with them. Youll meet strangers this month, and because you do the rare thing -being yourself instead of pretending youre someone youre not -youll connect and be instant friends. November brings a prime investment opportunity. January is your chance to switch modes and experiment. You could brave a new job, relationship change or move.

It is a really great experience. Mark Spence, about Island Ferry Take over the waterfront with volleyball? I dont know if that's really what we want to do. Ward Three Councilwoman Jennifer Salmon, about another volleyball court So thats it? Standing up here and talking aint going to mean a whole lot. Stan Kreuter, about the proposed water, sewer and stormwater 12% increase. The treatment of sewage is more expensive than purchasing water. City Manager Jim OReilly I do have concerns with some... of the contract. Im the chamber and the merchants... I would hope in the future we have a little better process. Lori Rosso, President of the Gulfport Chamber of Commerce and Secretary of the Gulfport Merchants Association, I totally love the fact that we have these courts... the problem I have is the terms of this agreement. Now all of a sudden we get this event and its sponsored by So49... I think its a little unfair to assign it to the So49 group... were not opposed to the event, were approved to the way its coming about... Im not political, I just calls em like I sees em... I think if we took our political hat off, wed all be a lot more happy. Owen Pach, Vice President of the Gulfport Merchants Association So49 is not part of the sponsorship... we were asked if we wanted to be a part of it and do a booth, and we jumped at it. Jeri Reed Im sorry the process didnt go better, but based on what we had to work with... I think well do better in subsequent years. Vice Mayor Dan Liedtke All you other wards, you have public buildings and you have other things going on. This is all we have. Right now do we have a budget crunch... do we need to save $107,000 for something else? Ward Three Councilwoman Jennifer Salmon, about Ward Four Councilman Michael Fridovichs assertion that he never saw anyone at R. W. Caldwell Park and that he did not believe the city should spend money to upgrade the equipment. If youre not going to replace it I would advise you to remove it. City Manager Jim OReilly, about the necessity of improvements to R. W. Caldwell Park. Are you kidding? Ward Two Councilman Christine Brown, when no other councilmemmbers had council reports Not well attended when I was there, but I was there early. Ward Two Councilwoman Christine Brown, about Tuesdays annual National Night Out event at the 49th Street Neighborhood Center I wish we had more of these details up front so you could have read comments beforehand. Ward Three Councilwoman Jennifer Salmon The mayor and I have spoken to the Pinellas County School Board. There is no intention to change the name [of Hamilton Disston School]. City Manager Jim OReilly, about another publications assertion that Hamilton Disston School will get a new name. I think were the most educated council weve ever had up here. Ward Two Councilwoman Christine Brown, who graduates with her masters degree Saturday. Ward Three Councilwoman Jennifer Salmon has a Ph.D., and Mayor Sam Henderson is in the home stretch of his masters degree. When it comes to the cameras and lighting on the street, obviously it would work a lot better if ... there was some coordination [between the public and private sector]. Bob Newcomb, Executive Director of the Gulfport Area of the Chamber of Commerce, who said he could not speak on behalf of the Chamber but said the chamber board would discuss coordinating such an effort. Are there other ways to utilize the volleyball courts so they dont stay dormant most of the time? Ward Four Councilman Michael Fridovich [Instead of subsidizing events] Id like to take a portion of that money and talk about how we want who we want to market it to. I think its time we start re-allocating some of that money to do a really smart, well-thought-out, marketing campaign for Gulfport. Mayor Sam Henderson, who said he was sorry that the Chamber of Commerce and Gulfport Merchant Association representatives left the meeting once their agenda item passed.

36 Gabber August 8 August 14, 2013 Somethin on my mind Somethin on my mindBy Bill Northr op B_Northr op@theGabber. com Finding Out What Is In ItAre you ready for ObamaCare? If you don't have health insurance, or your policy does not meet the minimum guidelines for coverage, or your employer's coverage is not up to the new standards, you will be required to obtain coverage under ObamaCare by January 1. The health exchanges from which you must select your care, whether through the state or through the federal government (Florida's choice), are supposed to be ready by October 1, only a couple months away. If you are of a certain income (as high as $94,000 for a family of four), you are eligible for a subsidy to help you pay for the plan. If you fail to comply, how you look at it. That's the way it is supposed to work. It's a bit more complicated than that which the federal government has acknowledged by delaying, for one year, the employer mandate that requires employers of 50 or more workers who work at least 30 or more hours, to provide insurance for their employes. Not only did employers complain about the Jan.1 deadline, but the government isn't ready for the rules and regulations needed to The complications don't stop there. The mandate that all individuals have health care originally required that you had to have proof of income to get your subsidy. Unfortunately, the Internal Revenue Service, which is the enforcing agency, isn't ready. So, there will be an honor system approach. That's a potential for fraud. However, there's another side. If, in the following year and the system is up and running, you'll have to pay back any money that you weren't entitled to. Once the system is running properly, and your estimated earnings, based upon the past year's income, is above the limits, the same rule will apply. You have to pay back whatever overage you had. In the meanwhile, the squeakily wheels are already getting the grease. From the very beginning, the administration issued over a thousand exemptions mostly to political allies. Now, major unions including the teamsters who represent IRS employes, say they want out, that the changes brought about by the legislation will negatively effect their above the norm. Also, congressional employes were originally required to purchase health plans through the exchanges. The latest news is that the administration and congress have come up with a plan that wipes out that requirement. Prior to this latest round of preferred exemptions, individual exemptions or delays have been offered. It wasn't free, of course. It required hiring lawyers to argue with the Health and Human Services agencies. With the delay of the corporate mandate, those individual exemptions were redundant, although not entirely. I know of one instance where the delay was extended to two years. Part of the pressure to give exemptions stemmed from the fact that employers were threatening to layoff employes pay for the insurance. State governments haven't responded too well, either. The original bill called for mandatory expansion of Medicaid (state run) to cover an additional 30 million people. The U.S. Supreme Court made this discretionary. Twenty or more states have not agreed to the expansion even though the feds will pay the entire cost for at least three years. Nor have doctors been overwhelmingly supportive. Some have threatened to retire early (I doubt this will occur); others have said the reimbursement for Medicare and Medicaid is too low and won't take new patients. Medicare reimbursement is scheduled for certain cuts. Also, with shortage is predicted. In addition, surveys have shown that not many are aware of the upcoming deadlines. Some think that ObamaCare was repealed or thrown out by the Supreme Court; others have no familiarization with the issues at all. For young people under 26, many are just staying on their parents' policies, one of the few very popular aspects of the health plan. Then there is the issue of price. Not all policies have been priced and some of those already marketed, the costs are higher (some are also lower). Overlaying these issues are the political factors. Republicans, none of whom voted for ObamaCare in because the employer mandate has been delayed the individual mandate should be also. Democrats argue that the Republicans don't really care because they want to kill the program. That's not totally untrue. A strong faction within the conservative wing of the Republican party are trying to defund ObamaCare. That would take away the funds to implement the program. They are trying to tie it into the upcoming budget resolution needed to keep the government going (already hit the debt limit). President Obama won't sign any bill that doesn't include funding; some Republicans won't support a resolution that includes it. Republicans argue that this isn't a political ploy, but a political principle. Once implemented the plan is not likely to be ripped out, cost or effect notwithstanding. Whether you support ObamaCare or not, none of this creates a clear path to broader health care. What it does point to is that the present 2,700 page legislation with 13,000 additional pages (so far) of regulations just may not be workable at least in its present form. It is almost certain to exceed projected costs. Certainly, if not enough young, healthy people agree to buy the individual plans, there will not be enough money to support it. If too many people rush the system at once, there may be major delays in getting care. At the time of passage, House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi said, you have to pass it to see what's in it." That's what's being found out. The picture isn't very pretty.

44 Gabber August 8 August 14, 2013 Artist for a Day: Jon Stine Shows Local Wood Hobbyist New TricksBy Cathy Salustri Jon showed Dan glue the wood, held together by joined biscuits, and clamp it. I learned that to perfectly join two pieces of wood you need to have perfect 90 degree angles on the adjoining edges. This makes for seamless joints that become invisible after staining, Dan said. Tucked in a corner of Anderson Lumber, beyond the sawdust-covered planer and table saws, Jon Stine works his woodcraft magic. Hanging over his head, a wood bicycle all wood, down to the chain lets visitors know that theyve walked into a special kind of wood shop. Across the shop, a plywood bar dont wrinkle your nose until you see the cross-section bar that will grace the new Cycle Brewing Company waits for more attention. Today, though, Jons taking a break from his clients to participate in the Gabbers Artist for a Day, where we pair local people with local artists. we chose Dan Liedtke, who has experience with woodworking and wanted to take his woodwork to the next level with a woodworking project in his home although he did get his BFA from Ball State University. He also has an MFA in printmaking and sculpture. He started his higher education with intentions of working in architecture and engineering, but quickly realized his passion lay with art and that hed be happier as a studio artist. I knew I wouldnt have a job, he laughs. But, at 38, he does: hes become locally and nationally in demand for woodworking projects. He works mostly with custom furniture, but goes beyond traditional carpentry. If you want cabinet boxes, call someone else. If you want a piece of furniture that draws focus for its beauty, hes your guy. In an era of furniture to go and laminatecoated headboards for $300, people respect his skill as an artistic craftsman. People will save up because they want heirloom quality [pieces] to pass to their children, he says. planer to jointer to table saw to bar clamps and then the biscuit joiner. Every step of the way, Jon explained the necessity behind it. Some Dan understood; others helped him learn more of the craft. I learned that to perfectly join two pieces of wood you need to have perfect 90 degree angles on the adjoining edges. This makes for seamless joints that become invisible after staining, Dan said, adding that he discovered Jon and that he could make a lot of cool things in his shop. It was a pleasure and a lot of fun working with Jon. I gained a new friend and I am happy to have learned more about Anderson Lumber on Gulfports Artist for a Day (Jons the one with the beard).

They closed the facility in Largo and now we haul to recycling material hauled goes through their MRF to be sold. How much does the city make from these recyclables? It depends on the market and supply and demand. The more people buy things made with recycled materials, the more money MRFs will pay cities like Gulfport for their old cans and cardboard. Right now, Gulfport receives $450 for every ton of used cans it sends to the MRF, but nothing for cardboard or glass. That can change based on what re-manufacturers (companies who buy recyclables from the MRF to make products) need to purchase to meet market demands. Every month the city receives a price sheet that lists what Recycling Services in the area that may be able to give us a better price. Heres what Recycling Services paid the city in July for your recyclables: The city received no money for any glass or cardboard, and instead gets charged for sending glass to a Sarasota facility. Corrugated cardboard goes to Georgia, where it gets made into paper bag and other brown paper products. Please remember that the city only accepts glass or cardboard too large for the curbside bin at the 49th Street drop-off facility behind the Neighborhood Center. In addition, it is a crime to steal from someones recycling bins. Songs for the Pantry! Victor R.

46 Gabber August 8 August 14, 2013 By Robert J. Myers, Esq. Decisions, Decisions, Decisions This week, let's take a look at how legal transfers of control and decision-making work. GUARDIANSHIP This is a legal process in which the court places an individual or agency in control of someone else's affairs. Since establishing a guardianship requires action by the Court system, it can be expensive and cumbersome. In addition, guardianship reduces an individual's legal rights to those of a minor. CONSERVATORSHIP This is a type of guardianship that applies only to a person's property and not his or her personal matters. As such, its scope is less restrictive, and the individual involved retains many of his or her legal rights. DURABLE POWER OF ATTORNEY By establishing a power of attorney, you authorize someone else to act in your behalf. You can give very limited powers, such as authorizing someone to sell property for you, or very broad powers, such as paying bills, making investment decisions, or making all decisions for you. A durable power of attorney remains in force even if the person who establishes it becomes incompetent. While a power of attorney is generally established to ensure that your affairs will be handled for you, it must be durable to be effective in the event of your incapacity. Any power of attorney, including a durable one, becomes null and void when either the person granting it or the person to whom it is granted dies. You should be sure to specify exactly what functions are to be covered by the durable power of attorney. For example, medical decisions, investment choices and property Of course, a durable power of attorney should be given only to someone you trust implicitly to act in your best interest. You should requirement of a durable power of attorney. Mr. Myers is the owner of Akerson 1135 Pasadena Avenue South, Suite 140, St. Petersburg, Florida. The telephone number is 727-347-5131.

Gabber August 8 August 14, 2013 47 Save the BeerSo, I dont recycle. Well, more accurately, I didnt recycle. I recently started, for a few reasons. One, my friend Andy is big on garbage. Seriously, he wrote a masters thesis on Florida garbage and used to work for the countys solid waste which is the politically correct word for trash department. Two, for two people, we were producing a lot of garbage and I grew tired of the citys loan shark bulk pickup rates. waste guys, but $17 every time the Claw of Trash swoops down is enough to make anyone start thinking, Gee, how can I make less trash so I can it in my can? Three, the recycling game has changed. Used to be, if you threw something in the bin that ended up not getting recycled, after a few months the MRF (Materials Remanufacturing Facility it rhymes with Smurf) would truck it back to the local environmentally responsible incinerator that creates power from trash, a la Back to the Future). This used twice the oil, fuel, wear and tear on the trucks, and manpower it would have if Id just tossed the damn glass bottle in the trash at the get-go. So I stopped recycling, except for cans and newspaper, because those always seem to get made into new stuff. I insisted I didnt recycle because I counted it a net loss for the environment. Thats right, I didnt recycle because I cared about the planet. Between my buddy Andys pained expressions that suggested that I was singlehandedly decimating the planet and Gulfports Public Works Director Don Sopak making me feel completely ignorant about the state come. Also, Andys getting married enough of a hippie that I could tell him Id started recycling as my gift to him. So, I started tossing stuff into my bins, but I wanted to recycle smart. As I learned last week when I prepared our Recycling Market Report, some things still dont make because instead of getting paid for the glass it collects, as it does with things like cans, Gulfport pays someone to take the glass. I made the decision not to recycle glass. This posed a problem for me, because I apparently am undergoing some sort of Earth Mother phase where I compost, make my own dog treats and sour mix, and want to use less stuff in general (which always made more sense than recycling evidence of conspicuous consumption, anyway: just use less stuff). This means when I cracked open a Corona Light, I hated to throw the bottle in the trash. Mostly because now that were composting and recycling almost everything we use, the damn bottles are pretty much the only thing in the trash, and I was starting to worry the trash guys were judging me. So right now Im trying something new: canned beer. Its not pretty, folks. Some people swear that canned beer actually tastes better because it doesnt let the light damage the taste of the beer. If thats the case, the only thing saving Corona Light is the light, because in the can it tastes like something served to prisoners. I committed to trying the no glass bottles thing for a few weeks, and Ive determined a few things: One, I am not one of those people who can laugh and say, hey, any beer is better than no beer. Two, I would make a lousy alcoholic, because turns out that while Corona Light may not be the best beer, not much else replaces it. Three, I really wish someone for used glass so the city can start making money from recycling it, because its possible I just dont care about the planet quite that much. I did bring my dilemma to Mr. Sopak, who had a hearty chuckle at my expense and, being a full-service city type of guy, suggested I pour the canned beer in a cold glass. Look, dont misunderstand, this is a true dont blame you for laughing at me. But after a beautiful day on the boat or sitting through the unique ring of Dantes hell that is a city council meeting, my reward is a cold Corona Light. Anything fancier doesnt cut Budweiser: the lack of pretension goes down easier after a long day. Admittedly, I dont mind a touch more pretension in my beer, although its Corona Light and not a microbrew I can neither afford nor pronounce, so not much more, but still. Because I care about the citys bottom line and, to some degree, the impact my reward for sitting through city council will have on the planet, I will see this experiment through the end of the month. Oh, and heres something to amuse you: apparently beer and soda cans bring in so much money right now, we apparently have a rash of recycling thefts in Gulfport. We know this because Mr. Sopak gets phone calls that his trash guys dumped the recycling on the lawn, and he has to explain no, that wasnt city staff, that was a can thief. Thats right, people go through your recycling at night and steal the cans. That doesnt mean you shouldnt recycle them please do, theyre bringing in about $450 per ton, which the city uses to subsidize a lower property tax rate. Just hide your can bin under your newspaper bin, because stealing beer cans is apparently the newest crime in town. So go ahead, drink more beer. Its for the good of Gulfport. Just recycle those cans. Even the Budweisers. Contact Cathy Salustri at CathySalustri@theGabber.com.
